About NVR South

NVR South parent practitioners volunteer their time;  all expenses incurred by running costs are funded by local schools, communities and charities.

We network across Southampton and Hampshire to secure funding to run the Non Violent Resistance parenting program.

We have:

  • Insurance
  • DBS in full
  • Safeguarding trained to designated supervisor lead officer level
  • Accredited Practitioners by NVR UK
  • Policy and procedures in place:
  • Confidentiality agreement
  • Data protection and security policy
  • Health and Safety policy
  • Privacy policy
  • Safeguarding children and vulnerable adults
  • Risk assessment
  • Volunteer agreements
  • Terms and conditions of use
  • Social media policy

NVR South Parent Practitioners were part of the NVR UK Conference committee, planning, preparing and promoting the NVR UK 2019 Conference. We were also booked in to present at the NVR International conference in Austria in May 2020.
